Now that the weather is really beginning to improve I’ve started dressing the boys for Spring more and more. I’ve not really noticed how few clothes Roo has that fit him as he’s in his school uniform now for 5 out of 7 days, so of course you tend to only need one or two outfits. Now that the Easter holidays are here I have noticed a huge lack of weather appropriate clothing for him. His t-shirts are short and almost baring belly, his jeans and trousers are just so tight that they are squishing him in all the wrong places – it’s like someone gave him growing beans and he just can’t stop!
It’s a total contrast to Toby who has a draw full of clothes, and I do mean FULL. Not only does he have the odd bit that was bought just for him but he also has all of Reuben’s hand me downs and that means A LOT of clothes.
Now that too is a bit older I’ve started to ask his opinion more when it comes to clothes, though I still do all the shopping for him and will just pick up stuff I like. I picked these spring looks with him and he loves them all!
Here are our 3 spring looks for boys 2016:
H&M bomber jacket – love the pattern on this, it is just too cool!
H&M relaxed jeans – Roo prefers relaxed jeans as he can run about more easily in them.
Jumping Dog tee – Jumping Dog has fast become one of our favourite brands with their simple looks, stylish characters and ethical brand.
Carrement Beau Peach tee – Love the colour of this, very Spring trend!
Slowers Espadrilles – These are the best espadrilles I’ve ever come across – just divine!
H&M Patterned Chino shorts – these are just too cool!
Jumping Dog tee – Both boys are crazy about funky animal tees at the moment and the best part about these is that we can colour them in with the rewash-able pens!
Jumping Dog jacket – Roo really likes interactive clothes (he has had a few Tootsa Macginty sweaters over the years that move and open) so this really appeals to him – the pockets pull out to create wings – decepticon wings according to him!
Clarks Canvas shoes – white and dinosaur – Toby actually has the dinosaur version of these and he loves them!
H&M Straight chinos – this is a staple for his Spring/summer wardrobe, he find them really comfy and easy to dress up or down.
Jumping Dog Baseball Jacket – Roo has just had to pass on his baseball jacket to toby and is gutted about it, so this is on his wish list!
Guzzi Slip ons – Roo is a massive fan of bright coloured accessories – he has a lovely jacket from Doodle Do that is BRIGHT yellow and he adores it, so these would be a superb pick for him!
Cyrillus Cactus Print tee – this is so cute and would team with any of the above jackets, trousers or even shoes which makes it versatile and sweet – just what we’re after!
So for those that think boy’s fashion isn’t as fun as girls fashion – forget it! It’s just as much fun and the best part of all is that a lot of “boys” clothing is actually gender neutral too!!
